Delta has been named one of the 2019 Fortune “100 Best Companies to Work For®,” according to global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine. This is the third straight year the company has earned this honor.
Delta ranked No. 97 on the list, which is based on survey feedback representing more than 4.3 million employees, with respondents rating their workplace culture on 60-plus elements of the workplace. These include trust in managers, compensation, fairness, camaraderie and workplace traits linked to innovation. The ranking accounted for the experiences of all employees including women, people of color, LGBT individuals, older team members and disabled employees.
“It’s fitting that we’re announcing this honor on the same day we distribute $1.3 billion in profit sharing to Delta people,” said Joanne Smith, Delta’s Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer. “We believe that these things are closely related. By taking care of our people and building a top notch workplace, we power world-class service for our customers and strong financial results for our company.”
“The 2019 100 Best are the leaders in creating the most innovative workplaces built on trust,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Employees at these organizations feel valued, respected and heard, and are inspired to be their best selves because of the commitment these winning companies have made to creating a great workplace for all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the company.”
The 100 Best Companies is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune magazine based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations. Within the past year Delta has also been ranked as a “Best Workplace for Diversity” (No. 26), and a “Best Workplace for Women” (No. 69) by Great Place to Work and Fortune.
